Matt, I think the idea of the clues is to expand the participation list beyond the very few who play.
But just a reminder of the rules, No Google and if you do Google keep it to yourself.
I think we established early on that book research was permitted but declare that when answering.
Hope you will continue to be a part of it Matt.
For now FILSGREEN please set a question.
Cheers
Ken

I’ve covered a lot of miles in this State, Nevada.
The day after 2005 Istanbul we flew there for the daughter of our Bootle friends wedding. We spent 4 great days in Nevada doing the tourist sites..

That's the one Ken.

Battleborn is also the title of my favourite album by The Killers - 'brought to you by way of fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada'!

The Men of Kent
That is the East Kent Regiment based in Canterbury as opposed to the West Kents based in Maidstone.

We visited Dover Castle last Summer, lots of Buffs info in the museum.
